Well today has been a great day!! I have enjoyed every minute of the day with my precious family.  We finally got some snow, actually about 3-4 inches and it was beautiful. I awoke to find my girls completely dressed and they had every stitch of wintery clothing/apparel they could find on and it was only 8am. I really needed the laugh I got from that. So we hurried up and had breakfast and found Zeb's snow suit and his Woody/Toy Story Boots and his hat and all that jazz and got him dressed and we all just went outside to play in the snow. We built a cool snowman and Zeb named him Frosty. He gave him a big hug then he beheaded him and we had to fix him back up again.  The girls they were having one continuous snowball fight and of course Daddy thought it would be so funny to attack Mommy so of course they all joined in on that fun. It was so unfair 4 against one. ( Yes even Zbug turned on me)   Then they wanted a sled. Well here we NEVER have snow so of course we do not own a sled. SO my thrifty husband rounded up some items and made a sled. I don't know if he is MacGiver or just a true Redneck but he made a pretty cool sled and the kids had a blast being pulled along on the sled.  At one point Zeb got flipped off the sled face first into the snow, he stood up and he put his hands out and said " DADDY THAT WAS NOT FUNNY!"  We all laughed so hard we almost cried. I can tell you God gave us a day filled with Joy and Laughter and I (We) all really really needed it.   Today I didn't sit and worry about Zeb's upcoming heart surgery. Today I enjoyed the Blessings That God has bestowed upon my life. Today I have hug, kissed and snuggled each one of my children. Today I have kissed my sweet husband and laughed with him and enjoyed the time we had. Today I am very THANKFUL and very BLESSED. ~
I know we have a big journey ahead in the next couple weeks, but I know that I TRUST GOD and for TODAY I am letting him carry me.

  3. Rhonda,
    It looks like this snowstorm was good medicine for you and your family! I am continuing to pray for you - that you will be able to do as the song says: "I'll praise You in the storm" (in this case, in the snowstorm!!!)
    Heart hugs,
